Well Christmas came early for me, well i actually got it yesterday but couldn't open it till I finished helping clean up the house b/c people are coming down starting monday.

Anyways I got a new computer!!!!!!!!:) :dancing: :yay: :jump: :wiggle: :peace:

I had been planing to build my next computer but I just couldn't build one for anywhere near the price of this one.

Specs:
HP m7640n
Windows media center, included free upgrade to vista when it comes out.
AMD 64 X2 5000+
2 GB DDR2 ram
320 GB HD
TV Tuner with TV in and composite video out
Built in FM tuner
Digital Audio out
15 n 1 media card reader
DVD RW with light scribe
O hell it has it all, minus a dedicated video card which I will probably pick up soon, probably a nvidia 7600, I really want a 7900 GT but I would have to get a new power supply sense stock is only 300 watt.

IDK what the flash is reflecting off on Dvd drive

Media card reader at the top, left slot is for HP personal drive(hard drive), right has 2 usb ports, firewire, headphones and mic, composite audio and video and s-video

The usb pci card was taken from my old computer, I have alot of crap that plugs in to usb

and no that wire isn't pinched, the case isn't even on all the way yet from putting in usb card.

The best part so far is trying to find all the CD with drivers for all my crap i got to plug in:dodgy:


I have only had in up and running for about 20 min but i am already in love with it. Came from a P4 2.2 GHz, 512 ram, 80 GB HD and ATI 9600 XT video card, so this is a huge step up from that. Best part for me is I can finally edit video again, I have been looking forward to that for a long time now.

I still got to move my files over to this one but after that i am going to see what this thing can really do.

Dan = super geek, don't doubt him.

I love HP computers just for the different removable disk drives. Its great for those who have multiple brand camera/camcorders. I've got CompactFlash for my DSLR, MemoryStick Pro for my Point and Shoot, and Micro SD for my cell phone.

man, that reminds me. i want to build a 4200 am2 rig and overclock it to around 2.6ghz or so, maybe 2.8. it's gonna have a gig of ram and 2 160gb seagate sata 3.0 drives in raid0 i think the total cost of the entire setup was around a grand.

See, my problem lies like this:

I bough a Dell about 1.5 years ago 3.0Ghz HT Extreme, ATI x300 128mb, 512mb ram, 40GB WD hardrive for windows, 400 GB Segate SATA for games and video work, 250gb external Maxtor one touch for backups, 19" lcd.

I was going to upgrade it, then we moved. Haa haa, then I got into buying motorcycles and still am paying on one from my boss that I was going to tear down and rebuild (I only wish it was a harley - not in the budget yet).

Now I got hooked on this blasted sport called paintball.

Priorities, priorities.

Nice rig you got there - enjoy it, use it, abuse and install Linux on it. :)
(I recommend FC5 or OpenSuSe) -

The 3.5" is for floppy's. Not many people use them anymore, but when you need 'em, you need 'em.
